[…] classical dancing is natural. It is natural human movement, improved and elevated as simply and elegantly as possible, by applying to it the teachings of music and science. Therefore, one eschews extreme forms, because they are unneeded. They add nothing, but rather detract, from the inner structural content of whatever we intend to say. Every dancer is entirely different from the next, nor should his body be pressed into the mould of “fashion”, because in order for his dance to remain natural and proper to him, he must move according to his own laws. This is what one might call a scientific viewpoint, independent of any fad, and admitting of debate on an equal footing with other Schools and nations.
